draftsight: menus gone; 64bit segfault

A couple of tips on draftsight in case someone hits the same snags as I did.
  1. If you have a LANG setting that does not correspond to one of the supported draftsight UI languages in /opt/dassault-systemes/draftsight/Default\ Files/UI, the menus and the toolbars will be missing. If you're familiar with AutoCAD you'll find your way around, but it is simpler to launch draftsight with a dedicated LANG setting from the supported languages, like
    LANG=en_US /opt/dassault-systemes/draftsight/bin/draftsight
    Edit the respective start menu entry of your window manager too. (I've asked the SlackBuild maintainer if he could include a brief note in the README.)
  2. The current SBo version (2012.3.166) is throwing me a segmentation fault on a multilib slack64-14.0. The last version from the draftsight site (beta V1R3, corresponding to 2012.7.347) launches without problem.
